Reviews forCabbage Roll Stew
"We made this at work for our cafeteria as part of a smart pick option for the staff. We omitted the salt to reduce the sodium to fit the criteria. Our customers and staff loved it. Very hearty."
"If you like stuffed cabbage but don't like the tedious work involved .... this is the recipe for you! VERY easy to make and when served with rice... tastes just like my mother's stuffed cabbage rolls. I changed a few things to fit what I had on hand: I used 1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes (instead of 2 14.5 ounce cans), 1 14 ounce can of tomato sauce (instead of 1 8 ounce can), I used 1/2 teaspoon of smoked black pepper (instead of Cajun seasoning), 2 pound ground beef (instead of beef and sausage) and used 2 tablespoons of dried sliced onion (instead of 1 medium onion, chopped). This recipe will surely go into my frequently used recipe rotation, 5 stars for sure!"
"Delicious recipe! I added some caraway seed because we like that with cabbage. We had it with noodles."
